What were the circumstances that caused you to initially look for an adviser?

Funds were not doing anything stuck in a bank account

How has Nikki Pipping helped you?

Nikki has been our advisor for a few years since being recommended by a friend and from the start has explained everything we could do with our funds by way of investments (with all the possible risks involved) and also how to manage our pensions and make the most out of them. We also get a full quarterly report detailing our various investments and at any time we could contact Nikki for her advice.

Have you seen the outcome you were hoping for?

Over the years the outcome has been as expected but obviously external events (Covid pandemic and Brexit) did have an effect which would have been worse for our finances if Nikki had not sorted them for from the beginning.

What could they have done better?

In the present Economic climate nothing

Nikki listened patiently at our initial meeting to discuss pension and retirement planning. This area is a minefield and there is still much to learn but I came away knowing more than I did before. I still have many questions but Nikki has provided literature for my further reading as I explore options.

What were the circumstances that caused you to initially look for an adviser?

I had different pensions which I wanted to amalgamate.

How has Nikki Pipping helped you?

Nikki explained how pensions work and how much better it would be to have a pension portfolio as this would mean the money left in it after my death would go to my children rather than a pension which stops after my death. She did all the work on my behalf, contacting all the companies and talked me through everything. She explained everything to me in simple terms.

Have you seen the outcome you were hoping for?

Definitely. There is an excellent platform which shows an up to date balance of my portfolio whenever I want. We have regular contact where Nikki updates me and makes sure there re no issues or changes in my circumstances.
